DESCRIPTION

Situated on this highly sought-after residential road, within a few minutes' walk of the town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches, a detached 3-bedroomed house, set in good sized gardens and with ample parking in addition to a detached double garage, enjoying views from the rear over the town to Pendennis Castle, providing immense scope for extension or redevelopment, if required, subject to all necessary consents.

THE PROPERTY

In our clients family's ownership for many years, 28 Grovehill Crescent is a detached individual house, occupying a good sized plot in one of Falmouth's most popular residential districts, within a few minutes' walking distance of the town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches.

Set well back from the roadside, the property benefits from deep gardens and a private driveway which provides ample parking for several vehicles in addition to a detached block-built garage with electronic door. Further patio-style gardens exist to the rear; the front elevation enjoys a sunny south-westerly aspect and, from the rear, views are enjoyed over the neighbouring properties on Arwenack Avenue to Pendennis Castle on the skyline and glimpses of the Fal Estuary beyond.

The existing accommodation benefits from gas central heating and double glazing to rooms which briefly comprise: an entrance hall with easy rising staircase, lounge with bay window, separate dining room with patio door to a rear terrace, versatile breakfast room, under-stair WC and refitted kitchen. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles, and a reappointed shower room/WC with contemporary white suite.

For some prospective purchasers, the existing accommodation will be more than adequate but the property's location, size of plot and configuration allow for further extension if required, subject of course to the normal consents. To this end, the current owners have employed the services of a local architect who has produced various schemes for extension and, indeed, the construction of a separate detached dwelling. Elevational drawings of these options are included with these particulars, original copies of which can be forwarded to particularly interested prospective purchasers, following an initial viewing appointment. (These are schematic drawings as provided by an architect on behalf of the current owners, showing the potential to further develop the site, subject to all necessary planning permissions).

THE LOCATION

Grovehill Crescent is located between the 'foot' of Woodlane and the entrance to Arwenack Avenue. Consequently, The Dell railway station is just a few moments' away, as is the town centre, Customs House Quay and the waterfront, at the bottom of neighbouring Swanpool Street.

A walk along Woodlane leads to the university campus, beyond which lies King Charles Primary School, Westover Doctors Surgery, Falmouth Tennis & Squash Club, and Albany Road convenience store. A short walk to Arwenack Avenue and Avenue Road leads to the National Maritime Museum and Events Square and, from The Dell, a part wooded walk along Foxes Lane leads to Melvill Road, Fox Rosehill Gardens, and the seafront and beaches beyond. In all, one of Falmouth's most central and convenient positions with all facilities 'on the doorstep'.

An early viewing is recommended by the owners' Sole Agent to fully appreciate the setting and potential 28 Grovehill Crescent has to offer.
